30 MFM PRAYERS FOR FAVOUR AND MERCY
Our anchor text for this topic is found in the book Hebrew 4:16 it says let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Also let’s look at the book of Psalm 90:17 it says May the favor of the Lord or God rest on us, establish the work of our hands for us.
The two scriptures read above validate and confirm our topic for discussion today prayers for favor and mercy and we can see that only God can give favour and mercy.
When a person’s life is devoid of favour and mercy the person’s life will be full of frustration. We can say that favour and mercy is a special privilege that gives someone an advantage over others, Every child of God should always seek for ways to attract the favour and mercy of God in their life because without it the person will be living a life of chance and frustration.
What then is favour and mercy, Favour is one of the virtues of God on our life, it can be described as the grace of God on our life, it means the person is approved of God, when God is delighted in an individual he will surely encounter favour while mercy also a virtue of God on our life means God’s pity, compassion and kindness towards us despite our unrighteousness.
Favour and mercy singles out a believer for divine attention, it brings you into the realm of glory by bringing the glory of the Lord over all your endeavour such as your career, business, family and ministry, the book of psalms 102:13 confirms this statement it says thou shall arise, and have mercy upon Zion, for the time to favor her: yea, the set time, is come. We can see that favour and mercy brings you into the appointed time for God’s blessing over your life.
Favour and mercy is the cure to all frustrations of life, it brings hope to a hopeless situation Eccl 9:4 confirms this it says for to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. You need to understand that favour and mercy is the exclusive right of the children of God, when you are aligned with God you will enjoy his favour and mercy.
Let’s quickly look at some personalities from the scriptures that enjoyed Favour and mercy from the lord, the first person we would be looking at is Nehemiah, he found favour with God and in turn God made him to find favour with man the book of Nehemiah 2:8 said about Nehemiah, that he found favour with the king. What made him find favour and mercy before the king was because of his zeal towards the work of God.
Another personality we would look at is Joseph, he was living a pitiable life, he was a slave but found favour and mercy in the sight of God. He was made a ruler in a foreign land overseeing the whole nation of Egypt, because of him the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house and all that he had Genesis 39:4-5
Job is another person that found favour and mercy in the sight of God, the bible as an account of job in the book of Job 42:10 it says job prayed for his friends and the lord turned the captivity of Job and God gave him twice of what he had lost.
We can see that from the example sighted above they all heard one thing in common, they are always after the things of God, by so doing they enjoyed favour and mercy from God.
Let Look At What Attract Favour And Mercy To The Life Of A Believer:
- Accept Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour, open your heart to God let him come into your heart
- Seek the lord and trust in him, don’t be in a rush to make decisions, let the lord guide you and he will bring you into the place of favour and mercy with God.

Read the Following Scriptures About Favour And Mercy To Build Your Faith:
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people.
Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
